Just shows how tough this sport is. He has all the elements, but took some really tough hits. I was never a huge fan, but I'd like to see him turn it around.

I'm not an economist or in the industry, but if every company in the USA hadn't out-sourced to other countries and we actually made anything here anymore, the situation might be different. 'Course companies had to do so to remain competitive.

Added reply in a thread Dylan Ferrandis: Yamaha's too fast.. 6/16/2021 11:07 AM

That's correct. A lot of Vet mx riders seem to be really big guys. I'm 150 pounds and a 450 was way too heavy and didn't suit my two-stroke style at all. But for a 6 foot dude that weighs 220, it's about right!

I was never really interested in having a family, since it just seemed like so much commitment and work. Then at 46 I got a woman 11 years younger than me pregnant, married her (since divorced), and my daughter is almost 7. Parenting has been some of ... more »

Added reply in a thread Looking for some moto photography tips 5/28/2021 4:48 PM

Try a faster shutter speed- that should help with the out of focus. Also- get a lens cover (clear thing that covers end of lens)- otherwise you stand a good chance of a rock hitting it and chipping it, which will ruin your camera.

Added reply in a thread Additional $1225 in fees over MSRP for new bikes? Really? 5/28/2021 2:32 PM

I give moto as we know it 20 years in California, sad to say. It's only a matter of time before sales of new internal combustion vehicles are illegal in this state- 2030-2035 is the time frame I predict, unless something radical happens.
